Spanish wind turbine manufacturer Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has secured an order to supply turbines at Enel Russia’s Azovskaya wind farm.

Under the terms of the contract, Siemens Gamesa will be responsible for the delivery, installation and service for 26 SG 3.4-132 turbines at the wind farm.

It will be the first order for Siemens Gamesa in Russia.

"The project is expected to support the country’s objective of developing local renewable energy resources."

Azovskaya wind farm is located in southern Russia and is expected to be commissioned by 2020.

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy North Europe & Middle East Onshore CEO Steven Pryor said: “We are excited to report this milestone as part of our market entry in Russia and we appreciate the trust from our key account client Enel.

“This first contract comes in parallel with our ongoing activities for localisation of nacelle assembly and local component sourcing.”

The project is expected to support the country’s objective of developing local renewable energy resources and a local wind energy industry.

Additionally, certain turbine components will be locally procured and assembled, in fulfilment of the localisation requirements.

The order is said to be part of the preliminary agreement signed with Enel last year for the supply of 291MW at two wind farms in Russia.

According to the Russian Association of Wind Power Industry (RAWI) report, in September last year, SGRE carried out discussions with Italian energy group Enel about the possibility of building wind turbine manufacturing plants in Russia.

Siemens Gamesa, which was created last year by the merger of Siemens Wind Power and Gamesa, offers product portfolios for offshore and onshore, as well as service solutions.
